When Carp attack!


(CBS)- If you haven't seen a video of Asian Carp before, you have been seriously missing out, because these fish are absolutely insane.

The Asian Carp, specifically the Silver Carp, are best known for being easily frightened by boats causing them to leap out of the water high into the air. With the ability to get up to 10 feet of air, these fish turn into boat seeking missiles capable of causing serious injury. Many rivers are being overrun with these fish, prompting fishing parties armed with nets and bows to aerial fish. Maybe next time they should bring a samurai sword along with them, I've heard sword fishing is really exciting as well.
